Where does the time go...

How could it possibly be since the 7th that I've posted? I was doing so well and then time just decided to speed up somehow!!! Eeegads! Anyway, I've created a large (5 x 7) card that I adore. I was inspired by by a small piece I saw with a cupcake and truffles, but I can't remember where I saw it. I also saw something somewhere with this sentiment on it and thought how perfect it was.


Let me know what you think...I LOVE it!

I used the Cuttlebug to do the swirl embossing on the truffles and cupcake icing, and the chocolate core cardstock with I LOVE! Maybe this card is talking about that cardstock!!! Anyway, I used the antique linen distress ink to age the sentiment (which is computer generated), and the background paper as well. It was white with the turquoise lines to begin with. I also lined the envelope with it and love that. I used real cupcake liners for my little truffle liners and cupcake liner and that cute ruffled edge. As for the delicious chocolate swirl, I cut a piece of swirl off of a chipboard embellishment that I got for Christmas, inked it with walnut stain distress ink and then clear embossed. I think it looks like delicious chocolate candy! I did several layers of embossing to make it look like it's dripping and delicious. I also embossed the truffles for that shiny chocolate look. Mmmmm. I also used the cuttlebug to cut out the 'Love' and 'Chocolate'. I really, really like how this turned out!
